Adverbs are an important component of ad copy. Powerfully written adverbs can express specific information that cannot be obtained from other elements.
The correct use of adverbs can help to distinguish your ad copy from others. Adverbs are helpful to describe how things happen. They are essential for a high converting ad copy to assist a reader to picture an activity.

Instead of using “lower your blood sugar”, use “lower your blood sugar instantly”. You will get a higher CTR if you use the second one.
2. Focus on customer problems:
Great ad titles must focus on the problems of your target and show how to resolve them. People click an ad if it provides solutions, not because it is optimized for particular search keywords.
In the above examples of both the ad copy, the headline is all about solving the problem “Diabetes”. So, these kinds of headlines are attention-grabbing and always get a high CTR.
3. Make the audience curious:
Always create curiosity in your high converting ad copy to know what exactly is inside your ad.

4. Proper placement of primary targeted keyword:
As for the location of your primary targeted keywords, try inserting your keyword in the URL, headline1, and in your ad description.
5. Include a proper CTA (call to action):
That might be the best tip of all. If a user takes your desired action, this is the last objective of your advertisements. A proper CTA is important for the same.
A little English grammar you must know, just joking! Not an Adverb, you have to use verbs here, like get, buy, shop, learn, etc. Examples are given below for your better understanding.
6. Be focused and specific:
Users who click on ads seek a very specific product or service. So, you need to be specific to create your high converting ad copy.
For example, the keyword “weight loss” is broad, if someone wants a diet plan you must include “diet plan for weight loss”. For booking, a cheap airline ticket people will search “cheap airline ticket” instead of “airline ticket”.
7. Create an attractive offer:
You have to create your ad copy by providing some discount and offer. The offer part is not in your hand if you are running an ad to sell affiliate products. In that case, you can provide some bonuses and can mention them in your ad copy.
If you found any discount offer on the product do not forget to mention it. Offers and discounts will make your ad copy more attractive.
8. Your ad copy content and keyword must relate to a landing page:
There must be similarities in content and keywords between the ad copy and landing page. If the content is different, and the targeted keywords are not present in both places, people will come to your landing page and bounce back immediately. Google also considers it irrelevant and may suspend your account.
If you discover your landing pages have a very high bounce rate despite the high click-through rate of your ad copy, the reason is the keywords and content on your landing page are not matching. Take fast action to solve this problem.
